The Twentieth Century African Novel as A Recipe for Gender-Based Disharmony: A Feedback of High School Literature Teachers and Learners in Kigali City

Mugumya Amooti R. | Tuvuzimpundu Josephine [2]


Abstract: The study presented Literature that demonstrates the influence of the novel and writers in general. Two out of the five novels on Rwandan Advanced School syllabus were analysed in terms of gender debate. As per the illustrations from these novels, it was deduced that the novelists do unfairly subordinate female to male characters. By means of interviews and lesson observations, it was revealed that teachers along with their female students are not impressed with this subjective portrayal of the female sex. We concluded that this could be a recipe for gender-based disharmony. Upon this, we strongly recommend cautious consideration wherever selecting Literature set-books.
